Give Thanks cu 07625
Weekly-Favorite   Weekly-Favorite
A big congrats to Kim, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I used the same scripture & a similar woodgrain bg, but I changed the layout & colors. This is also for Lydia’s Finish Line HYCCT1531C Challenge. I used a couple of dk gray Copics to draw the horizontal & vertical crossing lines in the lower left corner.

For my card, I stamped the woodgrain bg across the back panel w/ weathered wood then sponged on more of the same ink. It was sprayed w/ a mix I made of watered down white wash acrylic paint. The water can image was stamped w/ Memento, colored w/ Copics, then overstamped with black soot distress ink & the scripture added. I used only 1 line of a 3 grid border die for the little squares then backed it w/ the textured paper I tore off the upper corner. It was sponged & I also used the soot ink pad to drag the black ink across it.

These are the Copics I used.

Shell Wreath cu 06656
Today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC507) is a Pinterest board full of fabulous mixed media art. I could spend all day looking at the beautiful pictures. My card was inspired by THIS picture.
Shell Wreath 06655 I already had the mixed media bg made, just waiting around to be used. It was embossed w/ a chevron folder, then Versamark ink rubbed over it & heat embossed w/ a shabby white/gold embossing powder. I did the same to the wave die cut at the bottom. 

Shell Wreath xcu 06665 The greeting circle was stamped & gold embossed & I also added a few gold embossed splatters. The different shells were all gold embossed, fussy cut & I used a couple of Prismacolor pencils to add just a hint of color. A die cut vellum twig wreath was attached around the circle (it reminded me of coral) then the shells were added on top.

Here’s the inside.

Full Gauge Valentine cu 05389
The Color Challenge(CC516) on Splitcoast today is Pink, White & Melon. I don’t have those exact colors, but I did have a sprayed, stenciled & sponged background leftover with a mix of colors that I hope comes close enough. The pieces you see are what I had left from a long ago project. 
Full Gauge Valentine05385
The square cut outs down the side were already there (from an IO border die). I used a couple of stencils on my background then sprayed and sponged through the stencils. The gauge was die cut with a circle then the bottom section cut off and used on the right of the greeting w/ a little flower on top. I tell you, not much goes to waste on my craft desk.

The white background was embossed with some tiny little hearts and the heart on the gauge was paper pieced from a tiny section of the background. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you haven’t yet, you still have a few days to enter the DRS Thursday Challenge. This week, So Shapely! Just use 2 different shapes…that’s it! DRS images are not required and there’s a nice prize up for grabs.
